Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Cheese Curls

Herr's Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Curls - Ollie's Bargain Outlet $1.89
Just like mom used to make. Well, not my mom, but maybe yours? We weren't a big tomato soup family, but that's something we'll get into later. 
Today's post is another foray into stuff that's supposed to taste like other stuff, brought to you by Herr's and Ollie's Bargain Outlet. Good Stuff Cheap! (#notsponsored) 
Of all the things I picked up at Ollie's (which included blue cotton candy flavored corn puffs), this was the product I was most skeptical of. I bought it anyway, because it was cheap, and there was an odd satisfaction in knowing I got the whole full set of wacky Herr's products. Well, all the ones sold at Ollie's anyway. They're are more flavors available than what you've seen on the blog, but those aren't on sale for a $1.89, so they'll have to wait.

As I put the Grilled Cheese bag into my cart, I cringed. It isn't the grilled cheese aspect of this flavor that's making me hesitant, it's the tomato soup part.

Not Sure if I Would Have Called These "Snack Balls" - Cotton Candy Snack Review

Herr's Cotton Candy Flavored Snack Balls - Ollie's Bargain Outlet $1.89
Not the most appetizing name...

I was immediately skeptical about this product, but it was so cheap that I figured it was worth the risk. Plus, it's blue!

Deep Dish Pizza Cheese Curls - Ollie's Bargain Outlet $1.89

 Deep Dish Pizza Cheese Curls - Ollie's Bargain Outlet $1.89
Ollie's had a trio of novelty Herr's products in stock and the prices were so low I couldn't resist buying them all! Even the flavors I was skeptical of! There were these Deep Dish Pizza curls, giant bags of Jalapeno Popper curls, and (the one I was most skeptical of) Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup curls. My pantry is overflowing with neon orange puffs, so lets see if these are worth hanging on to.

The Best Redbull flavor ever?

Grapefruit Twist Redbull (Summer Edition) - Wawa, $2.50 (2 for $5 deal)
Thank the skincare gods, I am nearly free of poison sumac!

In case you missed the memo, about 60% of my body was effected by poison sumac after cleaning my yard last weekend. On the bright-side, I now know what sumac looks like and it's been ripped out (root & stem while wearing gloves) and thoroughly poisoned. (Fighting fire with fire! Suck it sumac!)

Now that I'm healing, I have a lot of catching up to do. It's time to call in the caffeine-cavalry. I rarely drink energy drinks, heck, I only drink coffee a handful of times a year, but desperate times call for desperate measures...actually my boyfriend has been on a Redbull kick and when he brought this home for himself I was so intrigued that I went out and got another one just to write this review.

Shake, shake, shake, shake-a, shake it! - Cookies & Cream

Frozen Bean Cookies & Cream Milkshake Mix - Walmart, $1.25
Linking songs to my reviews has been a lot of fun, but this one is a little cringe-worthy. A friend of mine worked at Journeys, a shoe store (when we were teenagers) and they'd get trendy music DVDs to play in the store each month. This smash hit (she said, sarcastically), by Metro Station (aka Miley Cyrus' brother's band), in an earworm I haven't been able to escape. (It's a guilty pleasure song. Don't judge me!) 

Speaking of guilty pleasures, why don't we do a quickie review of one of these Frozen Bean milkshake/drink mixes? I'm fairly certain drinking all three in one day is a bad idea, so I'll knock these out one at a time. First up, the safest bet, Cookies & Cream.

A (Somewhat) Meaty Meatless Monday?

Wise Loaded Burger, Grilled Cheeseburger Potato Chips - Ollie's Bargain Outlet $1.79
You know what? I don't think I've ever reviewed a Wise product before.

It's not because I didn't have access to their goods, after all, they're pretty much everywhere, I just haven't seen anything new or interesting from them. To the best of my knowledge they've shied away from the limited edition flavors-of-the-week game that other brands, like Herr's, Pringles, and Lay's, have readily embraced. (Unless I've been living under a rock or something.) Since they were only offering generic flavors, there was nothing for me to write about. Until now...

Pantry Raid! - Strawberry Cupcake Mix from Aldi

Strawberry Cupcake Mix - Aldi
Let's bake something! It'll be a nice change of pace from all the ready-to-eat snack foods I've been posting. (Plus I got some really cute cupcake wrappers that came with matching toothpick flags that I've been dying to use.) Also, I want an excuse to link a ton of Cake songs into a, here we go!

Flavor of California Strawberry Kit-Kat Bars - CVS

Flavor of California Strawberry Kit-Kat Bars - CVS
I'm a hypocrite. I called these boring, and reminded the general foodie-public that this flavor has been available in Japan for years, but I bought them anyway. In my defense, it's been a tough week.

Remember how I managed to kneel in poison ivy last week while cleaning up my yard? Well hold on to your hats, because this week I discovered poison sumac with (nearly) my entire body. I look like I have greyscale! I had never seen poison sumac before this week and even though I was wearing thick gloves while working in the yard, I still managed to get it...pretty much everywhere. Including the right side of my face. (Call me Princess Shireen.) It's been an itchy, miserable week, and while buying every variation of calamine lotion CVS had to offer, I noticed that their "Flavor of" candies were on sale. It was a buy one get one 50% off deal, so decided to treat myself to some sweets thinking they might take my mind off the itch. (Spoiler alert. It isn't working.)
